Color Inspiration with Skipping Stones Design

I am SO excited! We are doing a brand new kind of challenge this week with Skipping Stones Design! It's a color inspiration challenge! Here is the picture that we had to work with:

And now I want to be sitting on the beach, drink in hand, and no computer for miles. HA! No...that's not true...I would miss all of you desperately, however, I can say that I had very limited computer time over the long weekend and it was a bit nice to step away for a couple of days. I used the super fun Holy Carp set to create my card for this week. This is a GREAT Father's Day set and has sentiments for lots of other occasions, as well! Super fun!

Fishing You Happy Birthday

Yes...I took that shot on my desk. Sheer and utter laziness is the only excuse I have for that one! LOL! BUT...the card is fun, isn't it? I cut a simple fish shape from orange striped patterned paper and then coated that with Martha Stewart glitter. I stamped the water, slit just a small wave and tucked in my little fish! FUN!!!!
